Day 9: Foraging

“Because it’s a Saturday, I thought I’d try a prompt that asks you to write in a specific form – the nonet! A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second has eight, and so on until you get to the last line, which has just one syllable.”

In my palm lay pink dipped dainty pods
Plucked from the redbud tree above
We are told to eat handfuls
Tasting of peas and spring
Palm is heavy with 
Violets, too
